Woman accused of stealing copper

NORMAN — An Oklahoma City woman has been charged with three felony counts of larceny of merchandise from retailer after allegations that she stole $4,405.62 worth of copper wiring.

A warrant has been requested for the arrest of Jenny Lynne Woods, 27, after a Lowe’s district loss prevention manager reported a copper wiring theft that stemmed from three different incidents.

According to an affidavit filed with the charges:

· On each of three occasions, two women entered the Norman Lowe’s to hide large amounts of copper wire inside of a garbage can, leaving the store with the merchandise without paying.

· On Sept. 18, 2011, $1,116.10 in merchandise was taken; on Oct. 18, 2011, $1,808.90 in merchandise was taken; on Nov. 16, 2011, $1,480.62 in merchandise was taken.

· Surveillance video captured all three incidents.

· A Target asset protection investigator identified one of the suspects as Woods; Woods has a previous misdemeanor arrest that took place at an Oklahoma City-area Target store.

· A known image of Woods appears to show the same person shown in surveillance images from Lowe’s.

· Woods, who was interviewed at the Oklahoma County Detention Center, where she is being held for a different felony larceny arrest, denied any involvement in the Lowe’s larcenies.

· Woods has 22 previous larceny arrests.

Investigators have yet to identify the other woman suspected in the larcenies.

Oklahoma County Detention Center officials said Woods is being held on two counts of larceny of retailer stemming from alleged incidents in Oklahoma County.

Jail officials also said Woods has a hold for the U.S. Marshals Office, though she did not have a hold for Cleveland County.
